Extending Garment Life with Xeros

by: 
In commercial laundry operations, it’s important that the fabrics you wash, whether they’re hotel bedding linens, work uniforms, or ordinary clothes, don’t just come out clean, they come out with as little wear and tear as possible. For hotels, the damage done to linens by a traditional wash cycle contribute directly to the hotel’s costs. Why? Because, wearing out linens faster means having to replace these linens more often, which means higher replacement costs year over year. This is why garment life is so important to hotel laundry operations. Other commercial laundries find superior fabric care to be important because it ties directly to customer satisfaction, and thus, retention.  Read More

This is a big concern for laundries that use steam presses and other high-temperature processes on the items that they clean. But…Xeros’ scientists have already thought of this issue, making sure that…Xeros Polymer Beads are Resistant to High Temperatures. Even if a stray bead does manage to lodge itself into a fabric item, it will not melt in a standard industry clothes press. Why?  Read More
